Construction of a new multi-storey car park at Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital has reached a major milestone, with work topping out on the $11.8 million project.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian joined the Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock and Member for Kiama Gareth Ward to mark the milestone at the hospital car park.
“This project will significantly boost parking capacity at Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital, making a real difference for patients and their loved ones at the hospital,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Once it is complete at the end of the year there will be 220 new car spaces available, taking the total number of spaces at the hospital to more than 550.”
Ms Hancock said it was great to see the progress being made on the new five split-level car park.
“The new car park is just part of the investment the NSW Government is making in the Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital,” Ms Hancock said.
“The $434 million redevelopment will deliver new and upgraded health facilities, so residents on the South Coast don’t have to travel for high quality health care.”
Mr Ward said improvements to the hospital are vital for both the South Coast and Kiama.
“Shoalhaven is my local hospital and I am thrilled work is underway and there is more on the way to future-proof our region,” Mr Ward said.
The NSW Government is investing a record $10.1 billion on health infrastructure over the next four years to deliver new hospitals and upgrade existing facilities across the State.
